Still Life Wine Glass and Fruit by Morston Ream

Sensualists understand the importance of food for a voluptuary experience. Food and sex share much of the same vocabulary, emotions, and negative prohibitions from those afraid of both. As a Professional Companion, sharing a meal with a client is much more than opportunity to chat. It sets the tone for the rest of the appointment, which will hopefully be one full of wit, playfulness, and a complementary rhythm of pleasures. This article on Brain Pickings entitled, “Bedroom via Kitchen: What Food Preferences Reveal About You and Your Romantic Partner” goes into detail about the importance of lovers sharing a meal.

Sheraton argues that dietary preferences reveal a great deal about how good a dancer someone is in the intricate dance between abandon and restraint, so essential in intimate relationships.

The Seducer’s Cookbook, as referred to in the article, you may be assured goes well beyond the typical “don’t eat onions or garlic or other pungent foods when on a romantic date”, which anyone over 15 years of age should know. Seduction is an art that was never developed in Anglo societies, but it is very present in Latin-Romantic language societies, notably the French and Italian. Even the most mundane task can be part of one’s overall seductive study. Ordering, preparing, eating, serving food are all opportunities for seduction.

    I was recently party to a conversation between two apparently well educated jazz musicians. They spoke in total seriousness about the need to get past one’s addiction to food. Neither was overweight, but they were both apparently proud of the fact that food brought them no pleasure. They seemed to think it made them better people.
    This troubled me and I wondered when eating good food (in moderation) became a bad thing.
    Enjoying your posts.

  2. Thank you, Mike. 🙂

    I think the lack of pleasure in enjoying good food is rooted in the general anhedonia of a Puritanical culture. Also, a lot of people don’t seem to realize there is a difference in finding pleasure in food (and its associated activities, such as the socialization aspect) and being a glutton. As though there are only two settings. How ridiculous!
